 B.F.A. Thesis Ponders Future of Civilization

A SUNY Cortland Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) student will display his culminating thesis exhibition, an incredibly detailed personal interpretation of the future of civilization, beginning Tuesday, Dec. 3 at the College’s Dowd Gallery.

David Hernandez, a senior from Camillus, N.Y., created 14 paintings along with sketches, drawings and a sound installation for “Nothing Lasts, but Nothing is Lost.” The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, runs through Saturday, Dec. 7.

An opening reception will be held at 5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5.

Hernandez, an award-winning student artist, considers his paintings “conceptual gateways into a world that challenges what is currently perceived as a normal way of life.” His painting “Whimsy” won the Best of Show distinction at SUNY Cortland’s “Student Select 2012” exhibition of student work.

The Dowd Gallery remains housed temporarily on the third floor of Main Street SUNY Cortland, 9 Main St., while the Dowd Fine Arts Center undergoes renovations.

Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.
